Amber will represent Malta at the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest

Amber has won the 2015 Malta Eurovision Song Contest final with her powerful ballad, Warrior. The song is composed by  Elton Zarb and Muxu who were the successful team behind Gaia Cauchi ‘s victory at the 2014 Junior Eurovision Song Contest with Start.

14 finalists qualified from last night’s semi-final and they all competed at the Marsa Shipyard venue, where the Junior Eurovision Song Contest was hosted last week.

Runner up position went to Christabelle with Rush and third place went to Glen Vella, the 2011 Eurovision participant for Malta, with Breakaway.

The guests included the 2014 Maltese Eurovision participants, Firelight and the winner of the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest, Conchita Wurst.

Congratulations to Amber on her victory and now we will see her carry the Maltese flag to Vienna in May 2015.
